The Community Cohesion Team is of a group of dedicated officers who monitor tensions within communities and between the community and the police. To do this the team review international, national and local events, in addition to incidents Bedfordshire Police attend and deal with on a daily basis.
The team regularly contact key individuals from a variety of communities to gauge feelings and tension levels. During times of significant events or worship the Cohesion Team work alongside partner agencies and the community to support, reassure and protect the public. Bedfordshire has a wide and diverse population and fostering a cohesive community is at the heart of the team’s work.
Bedfordshire is a fantastic place to live and work, which the Cohesion Team celebrates by attending and supporting a range of community events, on top of running their own projects.
